Irish Rugby Star Goes Vegan

Leeds Rhinos' player Anthony Mullally ditches animal products after discovering the horrors of the meat and dairy industries.

Rugby team Leeds Rhinos’ international player Anthony Mullally went vegan last month. Mulally first gave up red meat in 2015 before becoming a pescatarian, and then became a vegetarian shortly thereafter. “It wasn’t long between each change ... I felt like a hypocrite,” Mullally said. “That was particularly true when I decided to switch from vegetarian to become fully vegan, when I read up about the egg and milk industry.” The 25-year-old Irish-born athlete believes humans are not designed to consume meat, and stated, “I feel evidence is more compelling for a vegan diet.” Athletes around the world—including boxer David Haye, ultramarathoner Scott Jurek, and former Mr. Universe Barny du Plessis—thrive on a plant-based diet. Last weekend, vegan bodybuilding team PlantBuilt won 33 medals—and broke two records—at the 2017 Natural Fit Games competition.
